Bringing the arts to children in Hamilton County

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The Dismembered Tennesseans were on the bill Thursday night, at a benefit concert geared toward bringing the arts back to Hamilton County schools.

The "Let Beauty Awaken" project was founded two years ago by a McCallie student hoping to fund art programs, that were cut, within the school systems.

The project's founder Thomas West, says new generations can benefit a lot from all the arts have to offer.  "If we can just help one kid experience the arts and that love that's behind it, we've done our job, you know."

All proceeds from Thursday night's concert will provide instruments, supplies, and equipment for children in under-funded arts programs in Hamilton County.
